of the sweeping address delivered in the u.s. capital in this must have pomp and circumstance. president obama's first state of the union since his re-election will be ambitious in his vision and no doubt punctuated. maybe some of us watching at home will be applauding. if you are near a television, the state of the union will be unavoidable. the networks and cable news will, as always, broadcast wall-to-wall coverage of the speech. the attention given to the president's speech is indicative of everything that falls under the category, very important things required by the constitution. have you ever noticed how the constitution described the state of the union? you might be surprised to find the founders are vague and sound bored with the whole idea of it. article two, section three reads he shall from time-to-time give to the congress information of the state of the union. recommend to their consideration such measures as he may judge necessary and expedient. he may. on extraordinary occasions, convene both houses or either of them. in disagreement with them, he may adjourn them to such time

is getting as wide as the grand canyon. watch how they do it. president obama wants to keep the government going. pretty simple, huh? republicans threaten to stop it. it's relentless, the fiscal abyss, the debt ceiling. different words, different deadlines all detonate the same explosion. they threaten to crash the government if they don't like the way it's doing something. if they don't like who the american people have elected as republican. isn't what the republicans did in the old days? if they didn't like a government somewhere, guatemala, iran, chile, they just brought it down. guess what? republicans are now using the same tactic here at home. if they don't like who we have elected as president, they find some way to undermine the president. whatever it takes to destroy it. we are using in this country the same old cold war cia tactics to destabilize our own country. look at the impact this constant threats to shut down the government have been having on public confidence. it's all in the ratings. it's undermining it, making people forever nervous about the basic ability of america
takes their eye off the ball, complaining about obama and tiger woods. the least popular senator is desperately attacking ashley judd. >>> and david corn, the co-author of "hubris" and co-author of the msnbc documentary tells me what was left out. >> i'm sure the administration cooked the books. >> good to have you with us, folks. thanks for watching. keep in mind when you hear the word "sequester," the sequester cuts were designed to be so bad, so terrible, that lawmakers would be forced to come up with an alternative plan. well, that didn't work. these cuts are on the verge of happening anyway. march 1 is the big date, a week from this friday. president obama responded with a real sense of urgency today. he made the strongest case yet about the damage these sequester cuts will do to the country's economy. >> these cuts are not smart. they are not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment roles. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. >> people standing with the president today are among those who will

"the new york times" topped its paper and we'll dig into the legal justification for drone strikes later in the program and president obama warning that the middle class will get hit hardest if congress does not do something to stop those massive cuts set to take effect march 1st. >> if the sequester is allowed to go forward, thousands of americans who work in fields like national security, education or education are likely to be laid off. democrats and republicans can still get together on a balanced solution to the deficit crisis. republican senator mitch mcconnell says that he know that sequestration would have consequences, but he blames president obama for not putting forward an acceptable plan to prevent it. for more on that, jonathan strong, staff writer, role call, alexander burns and national political reporter with politico. good afternoon to both of you. >> hello. >>
. president obama's state of the union feels more like three speeches at once. a short-term rallying cry, a long-term laundry list and an unusually emotional plea for action to change gun laws. >>> while senator marco rubio's watershed moment for the party came up dry in one way, his punchy primetime pitch did rev up the base. and it stirred up more 2016 talk. >>> also this morning, an exclusive first interview. exit interview of sorts. with now former indiana senator dick lugar since he left the senate on what's wrong with congress, politics and the republican party, and how he thinks it can be fixed. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, february 13, 2013. this is the daily rundown. i'm chuck todd. reminder, folks, it's february 13th. husbands, boyfriends, you've got one more day to get your act together. let's go to my first reads of the morning. the president's state of the union address ended up arguably as three speeches in one. it started out with a focus on the looming economic and budget crises that washington's about to face. moved on to a laundry list of familiar sound
date, a week from this friday. president obama responded with a real sense of urgency today. he made the strongest case yet about the damage these sequester cuts will do to the country's economy. >> these cuts are not smart. they are not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment roles. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. >> people standing with the president today are among those who will directly impacted by congress if they refuse to act. >> emergency responders, like the ones who are here today, their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded. border patrol agents will see their hours reduced. fbi agents will be furloughed. federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country. >> and it doesn't stop there. we're talking thousands of teachers who are going to be laid off across america. there will be cuts to primary health care fo
a week delay and probably going to be confirmed. >> senator hagel supported barack obama over john mccain. i think it is very personal with mccain. i think with other republicans, they are looking ahead to the 2014 races and they don't want to be primaried from the right. they have to look tough here. in the end, they are saying he will get through. he will get through without perhaps any republican votes or a handful of republican votes. i don't think that say very good message to send to the rest of the world the politics the republicans are playing in this. mccain, he wants to have it both ways. he wants to say i'll hold him up, but he will get through. he doesn't entirely want his fingerprints on this either. the kind of politics that everybody seems to play is blame-free politics. it is not possible. the public is sitting out there and they will blame everybody in the end. >> eleanor and emily, sit tight. we will learn details about the president's immigration reform. this is from the chief of staff. >> will be prepared and the bipartisan talks on the hill that we're supporting,
that kind e-mail. "morning joe" begins right now. >>> our president, barack obama, took day or two off to go play golf in florida. i don't care, fine, go play golf, i don't care. played with a guy named tiger woods. this is our president playing golf this weekend. what do you think? >> i thought it was funny. >> good morning, everyone. it is tuesday, february 19th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set, we have msnbc and "time" magazine senior political analyst, mark halperin. >> hey, mark halperin, how you doing? >> national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and msnbc political analyst, john heilemann. in nashville, we have -- >> look at that! >> pulitzer prize winning historian and author, jon meach meacham. >> it's dark down there. >> it is dark. >> shall we get right to the news? >> let's do it. >> there's a piece on rattner. >> sorkin, andrew sorkin. like aenaen -- an insider newsletter. >> none of us are quoted. >> i'm so tired of being an outsider, raging against the news. >> can we do news? >> yes, we can. >> msnbc news "morning joe." >> i ghosted this, man. >> let's move in.
by violence and gun violence. so i think that moving forward you will continue to hear president obama make these types of broad-based arguments in terms of the policy and getting stiffer gun legislation passed. you also heard president obama saying some of the measures he is calling for deserve a vote. realistically does he expect a reinstatement of the ban on assault weapons? probably not. he will continue to call for a vote but i think today is an indication that he's going to continue to press for other things like improving mental health services, early childhood education, and alongside that continue to fight for the legislation in terms of what is realistic, probably most likely getting universal background checks. that seems to have the broadest base of support at this time, martin, but we're really getting a window into the tactic this president will take moving forward as he does try to combat gun violence. again, getting personal today. it reminded me of his state of the union address when he had that rousing finish at the end which was also quite emotional when he spoke to the v
to president obama's state of the union address. mr. obama using his speech last night to express for more government spending, sweeping gun control measures and immigration reform. let's talk about it with karl rove, former senior adviser and deputy chief of staff to george w. bush, also a fox news contributor. karl, we heard the president talk about a lot of programs that he wants, things liken no sraeugs centers for american manufacturing, that kind of thing. but he says all of this will not add one time to the dead ral deficit. do you buy that? >> no, i don't. you know it was interesting the president did talk many numbers in his speech and the white house briefing sheets on this didn't have much in the way of information. there are three numbers, the president's infrastructure program is $50 billion, his project rebuild, that is to rehabilitate or tphol i shall a hundred thousand vacant or damaged buildings. 15billion. a billion for manufacturing centers. look at the rest of these things to which no price tag was attached in the speech or in the white house briefing papers. subsidies,
. well, republicans just can't quit their cartoon version of president obama as a tyrannical, liberty-hating socialist. how is that working for you guys? >>> and no surprise, the late night comics drank deeply from marco rubio's water bottle. >> don't worry, senator rubio, nobody noticed that you gave a speech. >>> and finally, let me finish with how the attacks on president obama's choice for secretary of defense are really attacks on the people's choice, the american people's choice for president. and that's what this is about. and this is "hardball," the place for politics. [ male announcer ] i've seen incredible things. otherworldly things. but there are some things i've never seen before. this ge jet engine can understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the ground and more time in the air. suddenly, faraway places don't seem so...far away. ♪ >>> well, my good friend new jersey senator frank lautenberg says he's going to retire next year and not seek a sixth term. and that opens the door for cory booker

happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe, even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had to say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them? "the new york times" reports today that anti-hagel groups are right now hoping for exactly that. quote, leaders of these groups said in interviews that they expected their efforts to include more phone calls urging conservati

the american people. >> reporter: the drone program puts president obama in an awkward position as a senator and presidential candidate, he criticized the bush administration anti-terrorism policy of enhanced interrogation or torture of suspects. >> this administration acts like violating civil libertyies is the way to enhance our security. it is not. there are no shortcuts to protecting america. >> reporter: now the obama administration is also under fire for what critics believe is acting outside the law. >> we have a president who is doing something that even president bush didn't do which is to order the killing of a united states citizen without clear evidence of an immediate attack. >> reporter: a lot of pressure from democrats as well as republicans to release these documents and today's release seems time to avoid embarrassment for brennan's nomination nomination. his hearing begins shortly before noon. in written responses to senate questions he says the administration is constantly refining the standards from the drone strikes. norah, charlie? >> bill plante
the administration justifies the targeted killing of american citizens. the white house says president obama has directed the department of justice to brief members of the intelligence committees. the move comes after a bipartisan group of 11 senators led by democratic senator ron wyden of oregon called for more insight into the government's legal rationale for drone strikes against americans abroad. senator wyden said on twitter, "every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them." this followed the leaked white house memo obtained by nbc news this week detailing criteria required for such a strike. this is all unfolding before today's senate confirmation hearing for john brennan, nominated to be the next head of the cia. and andrea mitchell, i wonder if this could, in any way, get in the way of brennan again. >> well, this is so much in a state of flux right now. clearly, i mean, the president's called to senator wyden last night, so unusual to try to reassure him and try to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. the fact is that brennan
